Clementine's Letter

Author: Sara Pennypacker

First line: "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of...ouch!"

Why you should read this book: Third in the award-winning series about the fidgety, impulsive, and intelligent eponymous character, this book sees Clementine in trouble at school and at home as she tries to please her family and keep her favorite teacher from winning a trip that would take him away from the classroom. The characters are smart and realistic, with clever dialog and situations. Really charming and delightful modern children's literature.

Why you shouldn't read this book: Your mother insisted you'd die of blood poisoning if you wrote on your arm.
